Erin Brockovich

Erin Brockovich is an environmental activist who crashed into public consciousness in 2000 as the straight-talking, pleather-skirted champion of the people in her eponymous film, featuring her David and Goliath victory over corporate America, the largest medical settlement lawsuit in history. In the ensuing years she has continued to fight for environmental causes, particularly water, becoming a national treasure in the process. People trust her. Erin lives in Augora Hills with her five dogs.
